Performance perceptions about leadership and relationships at work: Can they serve as buffers for burnout on academics?
A. Ferreira-Oliveira*
 
 
Content: The paper follows a process-approach, specifically based on the relevance of implementation processes on human resource management, and its relationship to health measures.
The study was developed in an understudied population, academics and researchers. Universities often do not pay special attention to their human resource management systems.
Through this quantitative study we intend to explore the relationship between, human resource management department perceived performance and academics trust on their leadership, with stress and burnout.

A survey was responded by 145 academics from 4 public and private universities. A path analysis was developed.
Results bring interesting results and show a negative association between leadership trust and human resource management performance with burnout.
The study´s main limitation is the reduced sample, however we performed a power analysis and measured for size effect.
This study reveals the importance of trust in leadership in a very demanding career as the academic. Also, it acknowledges the relevance of the perceived performance of human resource managers in the decreasing of the burnout index in this population.
Both results are new and enable the development of organizational intervention programs that can produce more active and competent human resource managers able to work actively with academics, helping in burnout decreasing symptoms. To our knowledge no studies have been made in this population, crossing burnout with trust in management and human resource management performance.
